The ideal angle of the sway bar is 5-10 degrees, there is no way to extend the factory links without cutting them in half and welding in about an inch or two.

Is it a daily driver? The angle is not crucial but with 3.5" I think it will be pretty low and I wouldn't recommend driving it too long like that. They won't last long extended that far and if they pop out, it could be dangerous.

Not a daily driver weekend enjoyment. Would you just wate on the ones to come in for the lift? Gen disconnects

Well if you're thinking of buying different ones now I would give the ones from JKS a look.

I assume you have already paid for them with the kit cost. I would wait for them, however, I really like the JKS quicker discos, they are worth the $!

It's hard to say without seeing it complete but I would guess that if you take it easy, no flexing or high speed cornering, you should be ok until the others come in.

You will be fine for a couple weeks. Mine hasn't had any sway bar links, front or back, for 8 months. Silly I know, but I take it slow and have never had a problem.
